UDI or "Unique Device Identification" is based on ISO compliant standard codes, which must be specified on medical products for the purpose of traceability requirements. By scanning the code you can obtain information, such as the manufacturer's name, item reference or expiration date. This allows for error-free documentation and helps ensure patient safety.
Laser marking machines create marks which are resistant to acids, cleaners and bodily fluids. As the surface structure remains unchanged, depending on the labelling process, surgical instruments can be kept clean and sterile easily. Even if implants remain inside the body for a long time, no materials from the label can detach themselves, which prevents harm to people."
